If there is contention between two ideas, it is that neither and both are correct. It is that both are part, but neither is the absolute truth. Never decide for one or the other, only ego will make such a choice. Always remember that truth ultimately happens when ego falls. It means that anything ego does along the way is against truth. Your nature already knows truth, it will let you know when something aligns with it. A certain resonance happens, a feeling of ecstasy arises. You can say this pleasure isn't the point, yet it is a by-product. Over time it fades, you become more used to it, but if you are staying in resonance with existence, it does not go away. Trust this.
